Many ecological restoration projects rely on revegetation from seed. This course discusses successfully steps for designing and implementing a seed mix, from choosing appropriate species to preparing a planting site. This course acts as a guide to making sound decisions for each of these critical steps.
The course covers how to:
- Evaluate whether there are seed sources on site or in the landscape that could contribute to revegetation.
- Design seed mixes so restored vegetation supports ecosystem functions and project goals.
- Obtain adequate supplies of seed and how to handle this seed so it maintains its viability.
- Prepare a site to be sowed.
- Install native seed.
- Manage sites following sowing to promote native seed establishment
This course is part of a certificate program. Site assessment and setting restoration goals is a prerequisite for this course.
Participants who complete the entire course will receive 3.0 Continuing Education Units (CEUs).
$375 course fee.
